TS2634 I am unable to charge my iPod.

I am unable to charge my iPod touch at all. I have tried several different USB cables (including new ones) and none work. I am also unable to sync my iPod with iTunes and back up my purchases. What do I do? I could buy another I pod but I don't want to lose everything I have on my present iPod. Is there any way I can charge my iPod without using a USB cord?

Hello,
I am currently an owner of an iPod Touch 4th generation, running IOS 6.1.2. I will be glad to help solve your problem with your iPod/iPad/or iPhone.
Restart the Computer?
Reset iPod/iPad/or iPhone:
Hard Reset: Hold down the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons on your  iPod/iPad/or iPhone for at least 10 seconds, or until Apple logo appears
Hope that helps!
If none of the above solutions work, could you please reply back as soon as possible, as I will try to find another solution to your problem.
Sincerely,
Pizza98704

    - Try another cable. Some 5G iPods were shipped with Lightning cable that were either initially defective or failed after short use.
    - Try another charging source
    - Inspect the dock connector on the iPod for bent or missing contacts, foreign material, corroded contacts, broken, missing or cracked plastic.

  • Nothing happening when iPod connected to computer (unable to charge iPod)

    Hi,
    Last week my 1st generation iPod nano was working fine, I had charged it to full battery and used it until the battery went flat.
    Now when I connect the iPod to the computer, nothing happens. Nothing appears on the iPod screen and iTunes is unable to detect the iPod.
    Since the battery is now flat, I can't even turn the iPod on. I have tried holding down the centre button and the menu button for 10 secs but nothing happens.
    When I use the same cable on a different 1st generation iPod Nano, it charges and connects fine.
    Does anyone have any idea what the problem is and what I can do to fix it?

    I have the same exact problem. I have an older iPod which connects perfectly, but my 1gb Nano isn't recognized. I just want to change the songs on my Nano.

  • HT1459 Unable to charge now that iPod Touch 1st gen unless I find the 'sweet spot'. Some times battery drains while charging. Help, please!

    I have a 1st gen iPod Touch and I am unable to charge unless I find the right spot when moving the connector head a bit. When I was able to charge, it would some times drain my battery. Now that it's completely dead, I can't find that right spot. Help??

    is there someway i can test this.
    Not that I know of.
    is the logic board responsible for calibrating the battery and charging ,
    It keeps track of the power and displays it in the upper right of screen.
    could it drain the battery say by not switching the drive off i use to remember when shutting down after you swipe the red bar it would give you an icon animation of what looked like a wheel spinning and then a faint whirr and clicking like the drive is shutting down .
    There is no moving drive. It's all solid state. What you were hearing is electronic sounds being generated from the logic board.
    i still get the the icon and animation but i dont hear the click or whirring anymore suggesting that the drive isnt shutting off which may cause the drain but not the battery indication .
    This even leads be to believe more that the problem is on the logic board.
    do you think its worth pursuing this ?
    If you could find a used logic board on eBay, it might be worth fixing, if you could get it cheap enough.

  • My daughter has tried to charge her ipod nano 6 on an imported italian computer and it has frozen the iPod...unable to do anything on it at all. screen currently says 'OK to disconnect.' No buttons work..HELP :+) ????

    My daughter has inadvertantly tried to charge her iPod nano 6 into an imported laptop. It has completely frozen all action.

    Myelo,
    Have you tried restting your iPod?
    You can do so by toggeling the hold switch back and forth a few times, and then holding the menu and the center button in for 5-10 seconds until you see the Apple logo.

  • Unable to charge my Ipad 4 with my Laptop (HP 7010tx) USB . I am Getting error message as "Not Charging" . Please give a solution for this ...???

    The quickest way (and really the only way) to charge your iPad is with the included 10W or 12W (5W on Mini) USB Power Adapter. iPad will also charge, although more slowly, when attached to a computer with a high-power USB port (many recent Mac computers) or with an iPhone Power Adapter (5W). When attached to a computer via a standard USB port (2.5W, most PCs or older Mac computers) iPad will charge very slowly (but iPad indicates not charging). Make sure your computer is on while charging iPad via USB. If iPad is connected to a computer that’s turned off or is in sleep or standby mode, the iPad battery will continue to drain.
    Apple recommends that once a month you let the iPad fully discharge & then recharge to 100%.
    How to Calibrate Your Mac, iPhone, or iPad Battery

    At this link http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/galaxy-tab-android-tablet,3014-11.html , tests show that the iPad 2 battery (25 watt-hours) will charge to 90% in 3 hours 1 minute. It will charge to 100% in 4 hours 2 minutes. The new iPad has a larger capacity battery (42 watt-hours), so using the 10W charger will obviously take longer. If you are using your iPad while charging, it will take even longer. It's best to turn your new iPad OFF and charge over night.

    In rare instances when using the Camera Connection Kit, you may notice that iPad does not charge after using the Camera Connection Kit. Disconnecting and reconnecting the iPad from the charger will resolve this issue.

  • Since updating my iPod to iOS 5.0.1 my docking station will not charge my iPod or play my music. I can charge my iPod using a USB plug or my laptop. Can anyone help please?

    Having updated my iPod 3rd Generation to iOS 5.0.1 my Philips docking speaker is unable to charge or play my music. It recognizes it for a second then unrecognizes it, then recognizes it, then unrecognizes it. It is like it is having a hissy fit everytime I plug my iPod into it. My iPod beeps when I initially connect it to the speaker but then it disconnects itself after about 2 seconds. This has only started happening since updating to iOS 5.0.1 last night. Please help!!!!!

    Have you tried the standard fixes:
    - Reset. Nothng will be lost.
    Reset iPod touch:  Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Restoring from backup
    - Restoring to factory defaults/new iPod
    Have you also contaced Philips?

  • Can't charge new iPod Touch from iPod hi-fi

    When I plugged my new Touch (late 2009, I think they call it) into the charging dock of my Apple hi-fi, I got a message that the battery could not charge from this device. It played songs just fine. I plugged in my first-generation Touch to confirm that the Apple Hi-Fi could charge it, and it could.
    I have other, older, charging docks (including a Bose Sound Dock) at various locations in my house, but haven't tried them yet. Is the new Touch unable to charge from such docks, or is it the Apple Hi-Fi specifically that is somehow incompatible with the the new Touch?

    Perhaps I can explain this a bit more.
    Originally, iPods charged using the "firewire" connections which are part of the Dock Connector. I believe the voltage used was 12 volts. Later iPods were charged using the USB 5 volt connections, which are also part of the Dock Connector, but I think those iPods could also be charged by either the USB or the firewire connections.
    Several manufacturers of chargers/charging stations/Docks for iPods did not add the USB 5 volt charge feature, probably because they were saving money and missed the incredibly obvious - that Apple would one day drop the firewire charge feature.
    That day has come; the latest iPods cannot be charged by the firewire connections, so if your Dock uses the firewire but not the USB, then it will not charge an iPod that only uses USB, such as the Touch. I have an eighteen month old Bose Sound Dock and it will not charge my iPod Touch. (I don't know if Bose have rectified this oversight yet.) I also have two Klipsch RoomGroove units. When the iPod Touch first came out, the Klipsch would not charge it. However, very quickly, Klipsch RoomGrooves disappeared from the shelves (here in the UK anyway) and when they reappeared, they did charge the Touch. I saw this happening and waited until the newer version of the Klipsch was available.
    Now you may think that Apple were in some way wrong to stop the firewire charging but, think about this. Originally, the iPod's electronics and battery both required 12 volts to work. As technology improved, both the batteries and the electronics could be made to work reliably with only 5 volts, which happens to be the voltage used by USB connections. So if Apple now have a device that can be charged by the USB on your computer, they don't need to include a charger in with the iPod. So the iPods that charged by either firewire or USB were a case of Apple ensuring that old style Docks would continue to work. But that was not going to last forever.
    There is no doubt in my mind that designers should have seen the firewire issue coming!

  • I locked myself out of my ipod touch for 60 mins then actually typed the wrong password in again.  Now it is telling me to "connect to itunes".  I am unsure how to do this.  I am unable to use my ipod at all now. Please help.

    Hi,
    Due to my brother locking me out of my ipod touch I had to wait an hour to log in again.  Unfortunately when I did this, I, again put in the wrong password twice more, each time locking me out for a further 60 minutes.  On my 3rd attempt to log in the wrong password was entered again.  This time though instead of logging me out for another 60mins it now tells me to "connect to itunes" but I have no idea how to do this and I am now unable to use my ipod.  Please help.

  • How do I charge my Ipod on the PC without syncing?

    I had to make a system recovery and lost all my songs. How can I charge the Ipod without making it sync with Itunes?
    I also need help on getting the songs on my Ipod back onto Itunes.
    Thanks in advance

    "Also, how do I get the songs on my Ipod back onto Itunes?"
    Yamipod may not work for you if you have iTunes version 7 or later although there is an "untested" version.
    Check out the instructions/suggestions here.
    Music from iPod to computer.
    There's also another method. I've successfully tested this across several different Windows PCs.
    Open iTunes and select edit/preferences/advanced/general. Put a check mark in the box marked "copy files to iTunes music folder when adding to library" and also "keep iTunes music folder organized", then click 'ok'.
    Connect the iPod whilst holding down the shift/ctrl keys to prevent any auto sync, and if you see the dialogue window asking if you want to sync to this itunes library, click 'no'.
    Then go to file/add folder, open 'my computer', select your iPod and click 'ok'.
    The music files should transfer to your iTunes.
    If none of these methods work, try CopyPod which also supports the transfer of videos from iPod to computer.

If iTunes can't see the iPod then uor only hope if to contact a data recovery company for getting data off the iPod. If you have an iPod backup you can restore another iPod, iPhone or iPad from the backup to get the data that was in the backup
